1:55 am
very much. i thought i would try to trace where we are with ukraine by going back and sort of tracing how we got to where we are. i will offer thoughts on the way toward. this is a very good issue. there is much going on in your with the president and his european counterparts. is very much in the headlines. protest that the began at the end of last year, it is fair to say that while the protests -- the catalyst for change basically reversing himself and associations agreement with the european union, something that you're expected, the u.s.
1:56 am
expected, russia expect, that the ukrainian people expected, that was the catalyst. as you and something even deeper. that was a profound dissatisfaction in the sense of disenfranchisement among so many ukrainians from all walks of life. with corruption, but the graph -- with economic stagnation and the lack of opportunity. these all came together and we have this catalyst, the 180. in a vicious crack round that followed. then we had russia and actions they were almost from another era. is that it's will to will and to disseminate its smaller neighbor -- it used its size and power to bully its smaller neighbor.

1:59 am
is critically important. ofgoes back to the instance a budapest agreement. when the soviet union fell apart a left the state with many nuclear weapons. extent, andc has another all day -- agreed to give up weapons. in the case of ukraine, it wasn't prepared to do that. byhad a firm commitment russia, by the u.s. and the united kingdom that it sovereignty and territorial integrity to begin rekeyed. the four countries signed a budapest agreement to guarantee that. the idea that this piece of paper could be torn up by russia profoundly called into question what message this would
2:00 am
you mean to those who considered nuclear weapons. the united states response, i think, can be looked at in two points of time. from the moment the protests were met with a violent reaction, we worked very hard to try to de-escalate the crisis, to bring the parties together, and the vice president was constantly on the phone with then president yanukovych. the president was deeply engaged with his european partners as well as with vladimir putin looking for a diplomatic agreement for a way forward to resolve the crisis peacefully, but once the russians went into shifted, andolicy the president set three very clear directions that we follow to this day. first, we will isolate russia for the actions it is ki
